Good Truck, but...
By Mike on
2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 4dr Extended Cab 6.5 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
Bought in Feb 09. With 29 miles on it, it started having extended start problems. After 4 months and 5 trips to repair, they finally realized the fuel injectors were leaking and replaced all eight; seemed to fix the problem. Other than that very nice truck. Could be a little plusher inside and provide more storage, particularly in the rear seat area. Drives as good or better than my 09 Honda Pilot. Fuel economy not great, but hoping to improve. The brakes squeal quite a bit, but only after sitting for a day or two.
Drive: very smooth and quiet. Transmission shifts are outstanding. XM radio.
Improve fuel economy. A/C goes from re- circulate back to drawing outside air upon re-start. Improved storage in rear seat area, provides zero storage. If you try to put items under the seat, beware when you open the back door, as items will shift and fall out.
